    Default cracked limb

    Well it happened. Had new string put on my '10 Firecat TR2. Took a handful of shots and heard a little pop on last shot when I came to full draw, went ahead and shot. There it was in all it's glory right in the fork on top limb. Shop is calling Martin first thing Mon. Hopefully they can get them coming soon archery season in Missouri starts Sep. 15th

    Russ,I have a 2010 Firecat TR2 also,Last year the bottom limb split where the axles go..My dealer had me shooting again in less than a week. I received the new 2011 limbs that had rivets re-enforcing the limbs, Good luck to you.
    I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

    Russ, you should get the new 2011 limbs. I don't think they are using any of the old laminate limbs anymore.

    I do hope you're up and shooting soon!! My Slayer X had splinters and cracks on both limbs and Martin is taking care of me, but the wait has been longer than some on here have stated ... maybe it has something to do with the years of the bows???

    Could be if the needed limb is not the same as the current size/shape limb.
